Autostarting telnetd when connection detected


Hi
When I boot my debian install with the cable plugged in, telnetd and wuftpd work fine.

However when I boot without the cable, the daemons do not start.

If i plug the cable in after booting, a watchdog message comes up saying that the cable was detected. However, my question is, how do I get telnetd and wuftp to autostart when a connection is detected?

Ps. I know they aren't the most secure of servers however the machine they are on will never be on the internet so security is no concern.

Any help appreciated,
thanks.

Typically telnet service can be run as 1)Stand-alone daemon 2) From inetd (/usr/sbin/inetd, /etc/inetd.conf).
In your system how does telnetd start?
Remember if you're using inetd method your will not see a process for "telnetd" unless someone actually does a telnet into the system.

Usually on Linux, you'll need the dir /etc/xinetd.d, and inside there you'll find the files that ctrl eg telnetd. Good howto etc here:http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...rappers-xinetd
